The Lone Star

The Lone Star prose poem

Photo by Mara ~earth light~ 

As usual, the stars, way out there in the distant sky, will probably be out tonight.
If it should become cloudy and foggy, they might become hidden from sight.
Otherwise, they will appear and fulfill their God given purpose, by sparkling beautifully and bright.

If I were a star, I would shine and light up the night, just for you.

If I were a star, I would come from afar, from way yonder in the vast galaxy, and not burn out, or even delay.

If I were a star, I would beg of you to look carefully, so you don’t lose sight, as I make my personal flight

If I were a star, I would be a lone star hard to miss, but if you are not attentive, you just might.

This lone star would appear just for a while, to shine its brightest on its given date.

This lone star would be programmed just for you, and guaranteed to not be late.

This lone star would arrive right on the scheduled time, just to smile and shine for the dearest friend of mine.

No, I am not a star, but if I were, I would make history. I would arrive special delivery, and shine just for you
